Unique Statues for Garden and Gothic Décor for the Home

Zen, Garden GnomeIt's easy to find decor for the home and garden but it's not so easy to find unique, high quality items for low prices. Well, not so easy unless you already know where to shop for them. You won't find detailed, beautiful animal garden statues, the best selection of stone garden angels, nor unique objets d'art for the home at the nearest big box store. You might find a few nice items after scouring stores for hours but even then, they are going to cost more than you probably want to pay. The easiest place to shop for high quality decor is at Design Toscano simply because we have a huge selection of unique, high quality items for great prices.

For example, if you feel like buying a new garden gnome but would much rather have a gnome that stands out from the crowd, you just might like the cute "Zen Garden Gnome" Statue. Although this gnome would rather meditate than work in the garden, he hasn't relinquished his white beard, pointed red hat, and other typical gnome attire. Complement his search for higher consciousness with the "Strike a Pose Zen Yoga Frog" Statue.

As for interior decor, you will find hundreds of exquisite and stunning items in our Basil Street Gallery as well as such high quality Gothic-themed decor as the Warwickshire Dragon Glass-Topped Coffee Table and the Chateau St. Roche Sculptural Wall Mirror.

Saturday is a Perfect Day to Decorate the Garden with Sculptures for Outside

Zairen, the ZebraToday is Saturday and many of us dedicate much of this day to the garden. After a long week of work, the garden is a welcome, relaxing place for rejuvenation, especially now that the warm weather has come back to town. How nice to sit out back on a favorite bench to read a good book, sip on a cold drink, or just watch the birds come to the feeder. However, most of us also have to spend some of that time trimming plants, taking care of vegetables, and just decorating the garden. That can be hard work at times but it always pays off and is usually much more relaxing than working at the office.

You will know when the backyard needs a new statue if one or more of the other statues start to look "old" or if the garden looks sort of empty. When that happens, the garden will probably look much better with a new statue or two. The best statue for the garden depends on your likes and how you feel like decorating it. That new sculpture might end up being something along the lines of a functional religious statue like the Nature's Nurturer: St. Francis Sculpture, or perhaps a beautiful animal yard statue like Zairen, the Zebra.

A quality stone garden angel can add a dramatic, classic look and we also have striking collection of greenmen sculptures to put a face on your favorite Maple, Oak, or Basswood.

Give the Backyard a Unique Down Under Look with Australian Animal Garden Statues

Kouta, The Climbing Koala SculptureThe garden decorating season is here and most of us mark this time of the year by planting vegetables and flowers in the backyard and shopping for new resin garden statues. We all want to find the best deals on garden statuary and make use of decor that lends a unique look to the backyard but this can be a challenge when you already have a good selection of statues to choose from. This year, instead of buying a new stone garden angel, you may want to consider statues of Australian animals. There are few places on the planet that have as many unique and signature animals as Down Under and any of those creatures will give your garden a unique, exotic look.

Instead of putting a statue of a mischievous squirrel in your favorite backyard tree, decorate it with Kouta, the Climbing Koala. This realistic animal garden statue is nearly as adorable as the actual Eucalyptus munching animals that add charm to Australian woodlands. It can also be displayed on a garden wall.

Complement Kouta the Koala with another wild, signature animal of the Australian outback, the kangaroo. The Kangaroo and Joey Australian Outback Statue is as large as the actual hoppers that spring across the Australian landscape. Put this life-like beauty in the garden and neighbors will wonder where you managed to find such an amazing pet.

Resin Garden Statues to Honor the Memory of Loved Ones

Angels of Alghero Religious StatuesGarden statuary can be used for more than decor. While we do put high quality animal garden sculptures, garden angels, and other classic sculptures into a garden or backyard to help beautify it and give it character, we can also use religious statues for inspiration and paying homage to our belief systems. We can put in outdoor garden water fountains to bring the soothing sound of falling water into the backyard, and the permanence and beauty of sculptures make them perfect for remembering loved ones who have passed away.

The Angel of Grief Monument Statue is a classic piece that was designed by William Wetmore Story in memory of his dearly departed wife. Similar sculptures are seen in cemeteries and gardens to this day because they encapsulate the grief we feel upon losing a loved one. This statue pairs well with the Angels of Alghero Religious Statues and the stunning Intercession Angel: Praying Hands Religious Statue.

Cast stone memorial garden benches are another excellent means of remembering loved ones with garden decor. We have a variety of cast stone benches in our collection that can be personalized with the name of the dearly departed. The In Our Hearts Forever Personalized Cast Stone Memorial Garden Bench is one such item that reminds us of the love we still feel for the departed with a beautiful phrase.

Picking Out the Best Religious Outdoor Statues for Your Garden

Jesus Loves the Little ChildrenReligious-themed statues are a common, beautiful aspect of many gardens. Some of us opt for a classic stone garden angel while others prefer to decorate the garden with beautiful reminders of their faith. There are also people who opt for putting an impressive large Buddha statue in the garden and other Asian-themed religious statues. No matter what your preference is in terms of religious sculptures, you will probably find one or more perfect additions to the garden in our collection of religious resin garden statues. Here are a few tips for picking out the best religious sculpture for your backyard:

  • Pick out a statue that fits in with other garden decor: While most religious statues will easily compliment other garden statue decor, something along the lines of the Jesus Loves the Little Children Garden Sculpture will look much better in a backyard with cheerful gnomes, statues of children, and cute animal garden statues than more solemn sculptures.
  • Use angel statues for a garden with classic statuary: If you have a Victorian garden or one decorated with classic decor, there's a good chance that you already have a few fine angel sculptures. The beautiful Angel of Patience Sculpture will further highlight your fine collection of classic decor.
  • Try a Buddha statue for natural-themed gardens: Sculptures like the Jolly Hotei Buddha Statue and other Buddhas work very well with backyards that put the emphasis on natural decor.

Which Sculptures for Outside Are Suited for a Natural Garden?

Black Bear and Cub Grand Scale Animal SculptureAs our backyards come back to life after the long, cold winter, we can reflect on some different types of gardens. Large estates can host a menagerie of classic garden statuary, animal garden sculptures, and other garden decor. More common, medium-sized gardens can show sculpted hedges, a stone garden angel here and there, and a few other resin garden statues. Small, urban gardens might not have as much space for grand scale statues but do have enough room for a few garden gnomes and potted flowers.

There are also gardens that put the focus on nature. These are the backyards where invasive plants are removed and native plant species are cultivated. Some garden space might also be left to grow on its own and provide more habitat for birds and small animals. Certain types of garden statues are well suited for these types of gardens and include such animal statues as the Mother Doe and Fawn and the Mother Black Bear and Cub Grand Scale Animal Sculpture. Both of these realistic and beautiful garden statue sets look right at home in a wilder, more natural garden. Another statue that looks right at home in a wilder garden is the Bigfoot, the Bashful Yeti Tree Sculpture.

Three Tips to Pick Out the Best Animal Yard Statue for your Garden

Sitting Bengal Tiger Cub StatueAnimal garden sculptures come in many forms and sizes. With so many types of statues to choose from, it can be challenging to pick out the best decor for the garden. The following are three tips to help everyone from beginning gardeners to veterans in backyard decor pick out the best animal statues for their decorating needs:

  • Think about the size of the garden: Whether looking for an animal statue or a stone garden angel, this is one of the most basic things to consider. Size the statue accordingly because you don't want to pick out a statue that ends up dominating the entire garden. Instead, choose animal sculptures that will highlight the beauty of the yard without "taking over". A medium sized animal statue like the Sitting Bengal Tiger Cub Statue is a good bet.
  • Cute or fierce?: While you don't have to choose between the cutest statue and the scariest, gardeners do need to think about the type of animal personality portrayed in their garden. A Meerkat statue is ideal for those in search of a a curious, cute animal.
  • Wild or domesticated: In general, animal statues can also be separated into one of these two categories. Keep this in mind to decide if you would rather see a Swan of the Lake statue in the garden as opposed to a Prowling Spotted Jaguar statue.

Enjoy a 20% discount on any of the animal garden statues in our collection when purchased by today, March 28th.

Stone Garden Angel Statue Sets

Pescara Proclamation Angels Religious StatueThe angel statue has been classic garden decor for more than a thousand years. Travel to Europe and you will see tall, robed angels on the ramparts of Gothic cathedrals that date back to the Middle Ages, majestic, winged angel statues in Renaissance era churches, and a variety of angels in cemeteries and Victorian gardens. Sculptures of these heavenly beings capture our attention with their winged, other worldly appearance and add a classy touch to any garden. The only thing better than putting one angel statue in the garden is putting two angel statues on display and when those two statues work with each other as a set, they double their angelic splendor.

Angel statue pairs are often designed to welcome guests to a church or garden in stunning, regal fashion. That tendency is wonderfully demonstrated by the Pescara Proclamation Angels Religious Statues. These magnificent angels were cast from 19th century originals found in an Italian cathedral and show the same detailed robes, raised wings, and long, glorious trumpets. At over 6 feet in height, these breathtaking angels are suited for the biggest of gardens.

If the Pescara Angels seem a bit too big for your garden, the smaller yet no less stunning Majestic Angel Guardians of the Gate might be a suitable solution. These beautiful gateway angels are also cast from 19th century Italian originals and can be leveraged to provide lighting in the form of candles.

New Garden Statuary for Spring

Spring means warmer weather and a welcome respite from the cold but it's also all about renewal. After the long, cold winter (and this year was particularly brutal), it's a relief to see green grass, fresh flower buds on backyard trees, and birds singing in the garden. The backyard looks fresh, revived, and ready to be decorated with your favorite stone garden angel, animal garden sculptures, and other cheerful decor. To mark this natural celebration, match the garden's fresh, new look with new garden statues from Design Toscano.

St. Fiacre, the Gardener's Patron Saint Statue is a nice addition for folks who are serious about gardening. Legend has it that Saint Fiacre was able to create a huge, beautiful healing herb garden with little effort. Hopefully, some of that gardening prowess will rub off on those who put his statue on display.

Another good candidate for a new spring garden statue is our Cherubs d'Amour sculpture. This cute little statue blends an angelic appearance with the innocent beauty of children and is a nice addition for a garden decorated with classic statuary or religious statues. Pair it with the equally adorable "Basket of Treats" Cherub Statue for full effect.

Sculptures for Outside Include Animals, Angels, Fountains, and More

Zairen, the Zebra SculptureOne of the beautiful things about garden statuary is the huge variety of forms they take and themes they can follow. While one can always stick to decorating the backyard with garden gnomes and garden fairies, nowadays, we can also put such statues on display as gargoyles, beautiful angels, and highly detailed animals. If the garden could use a change in decor, and lacks an animal yard statue, you might want to consider putting something like Zairen the Zebra Sculpture on display. This striking, realistic sculpture adds a beautiful, exotic look to any backyard and looks even better when complimented with a fun animal statue like "Pongo, the Hanging Baby Orangutan" Statue.

If you already have enough animal statues in the yard, you might want to go for a statue or two that is a bit more classic in nature. A stone garden angel such as the Angel of Patience Sculpture and the cute In God's Grace Angel Statue are just two of many fine angel statues in our collection.

Or, perhaps the time has come to put a sculptural fountain in the backyard. The Medici Lion Four-Tier Fountain is a majestic fountain fit for the most elegant of gardens while the Quenching a Big Thirst Sculptural Fountain entertains with its big, thirsty Saint Bernard.
